Sweden entered the Eurovision Song Contest 1991, held in Rome, Italy.

Swedish broadcater Sveriges Television continued using their successful Melodifestivalen contest to select their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. Melodifestivalen 1991 was held on 31 March, where ten artists competed to sing for Sweden.

Carola Häggkvist won the competition after competing for her second time, having come third in 1983. She sang the song "Fångad av en stormvind" (Captured by a Storm).

One of the favourites to win, Carola song eight on the night of the contest, following Luxembourg and preceding France. At the close of the voting, she had received 146 points, placing joint 1st place with France's Amina. After the four-way tie at the 1969 contest, a tie-break system had been implemented, where a count-back on the number of top points awarded was used. Since both countries received four 12-points, but Sweden gaining five 10-points over France's two, Sweden was declared the winner, with Carola taking Sweden's third victory.
